This really is a surprise. Have the UCI announced that they will disclose the reasons why to the public?

In other words, you're telling me, you have 0 brain cells, right?

No, the full details of the Padova investigation have not yet been disclosed to CONI. When that comes in Scarponi's situation could dramatically change for the worse, from what I've read.

If this really was financial rather than ethical or sporting reasons, surely UCI would have accepted 17 teams and given Katusha a chance to provide more evidence - or possibly given them a final deadline like Christina Watches.
Could this all just be a clever plot by the UCI to get a 19th team into the ProTour? If the reason is financial and Katusha can demonstrate they are sound, UCI will be forced to accept them, and they have already committed places to 18 teams.

I'm thinking that'll be the solution for the UCI 'screw up'.

BMW, Froomey and J-ROD each lead one GT and each
ride support in one GT. And with Greg Lemond as a DS,
Sky is set to dominate another year.
